Jane Glover takes the podium to begin her tenth season as Music Director with two great works from the classical era—Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass and Mozart’s Prague Symphony. Soprano Susanna Phillips, praised by the Chicago Tribune as a “splendidly musical singer,” stars in these gala opening concerts.

“Glover led a riveting account [of the Lord Nelson Mass], high on drama, angst, and triumphalism.”

Chicago Tribune
